A better start through early diagnosis
This program aims to harness existing knowledge of autism to improve diagnosis, and use breakthroughs in biological research to identify subtypes of autism and the most effective interventions for these. To do this we will create one of the largest repositories of autistic biological information in the world. We hope to match children with the intervention that works best for their biological make-up.
Professor Andrew Whitehouse is the Director of Program 1.
Enhancing teaching and learning

Professor Suzanne Carrington is the Director of Program 2.
